A monotype is a unique print made by painting, drawing or inking on one surface and transferring the image to paper or another substrate using a printing press or by hand.

This 4-week class offers a detailed look at Monotypes, and encourages students to experiment and have fun in a stress-free environment. Basic monotype printmaking techniques will be taught as you create an array of beautiful prints using ink, elements, and the pressure of RIWS's own etching press for the transfer.

Experimentation is key during the process and makes this art form fun and often pleasantly unpredictable. Marks and textures are added with brushes, palette knives, gauze, string, textured paper or netting. Ideas and results are as endless as your imagination. In addition to the basics, you will learn color blocking, layering and other monotype techniques.

Our teacher, Andrea Warner, is active member of both the Rhode Island Watercolor Society and the Monotype Guild of New England. She has many years of experience in a variety of monotype printmaking techniques.

*Students can bring items or materials, such as leaves, small twigs, kitchen recyclables, such as mesh onion bags, or anything flat, or that can be flattened, to use as elements. Full materials list HERE
